Listening to the body
I am deeply suspicious of cross fit. While I work out with heavy weight, all the classic compound lifts, I’m deeply suspicious of any training that makes people needlessly tired. Now all training differs depending on your intended goal. So my own might be clouding my vision of other forms of training.
But we should always listen to our bodies. And inflammation, which all my runner and cross fit friends are so proud of constantly having, is a sign of doing something wrong.
Inflammation is the body’s response to an injury or unnatural wear and tear. If you are regularly getting inflammation due to working out... it might be time to rethink your goals.
